The SP is controlled by a handful of environment variables that can be used to override the default files and locations used. If not set, the software uses values that are either compiled in based on the installation location (Unix), or defaulted (Windows).

  • SHIBSP_PREFIX
    • Base directory of SP installation. Defaults to c:\opt\shibboleth-sp on Windows. On Unix, defaults to the configure prefix used when building the software.

  • SHIBSP_CONFIG
    • Name of primary configuration file. Defaults to shibboleth2.xml and is assumed to be in etc/shibboleth relative to the installation prefix.

  • SHIBSP_SCHEMAS
    • A list of XML Schema catalogs that map XML namespaces to schema files. Used when validating XML. Like a Java classpath, the paths are separated by a colon on Unix and a semicolon on Windows. The default catalog files are located in share/xml/xmltooling, share/xml/opensaml, and share/xml/shibboleth, relative to the installation prefix. The actual files have to be set, not just the directories.

  • SHIBSP_LOGGING
    • Name of a logging configuration file to use when running command line tools, or in the case of shibd, before dedicated logging is initialized. Defaults to console.logger and is assumed to be in etc/shibboleth relative to the installation prefix.
